Hooghan Hózhó is on a “gateway” site into Downtown Gallup. The 44-unit, multi-family rental apartments transform a vacant city block to a mixed-income community. Taking advantage of a challenging site condition, one level of naturally ventilated structured parking is inserted into a steep grade over the majority of the vacant block, creating a street level podium for Hooghan Hózhó Family Housing. From Coal Avenue, the ground floor of Hooghan Hózhó contains a secured courtyard, resident facilities, and offices for the property manager and CARE 66 Support Services staff. The housing is configured in three levels incorporating several unique outdoor courtyards for residents to foster community, wellness and a sweeping connection to the surrounding Gallup landscape. Green design makes this sustainable and cost-effective to operate. This project also contributes to community revitalization program by connecting a long vacant lot to the vibrant urban fabric of downtown Gallup and by providing residents with ready access to jobs, transportation, retail, city services and civic amenities.
